Wines of the Week: Waistline-friendly Wines for 2018

Welcome and thanks for joining me for my first “Wines of the Week” show of 2018! I’m thrilled to be back and after a few weeks of shameless indulging, I think today’s episode is, ahem, extremely relevant. Now that the holiday indulgence is over, it seems the popular inclination is to relegate January to a month of self-imposed restriction in order to lose weight or  ‘get fit’ which requires that every enjoyable thing is banished from our homes.

Now that just doesn’t sound like a very Happy New Year, does it?

You see, I’m a firm believer in the motto “all things in moderation” and in keeping with that philosophy I don’t think there’s any reason you have to give up your daily glass of wine to achieve optimal health. What about your spiritual health and well being – shouldn’t that count for something too?


In this episode I share four delicious waistline-friendly wines that are least likely to sabotage your New Year’s fitness or weight loss goals. I’ll also share tips on how to shop for these wines at your local wine or grocery store. Who knows, by allowing yourself this daily indulgence you might not only find yourself losing weight but in a much better mood as well!


1.) Tesoro della Regina Prosecco, Veneto, Italy, NV ($16)

2.) Martin Codax Albariño Rias Baixas, Spain, 2016 ($14)

3.) Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) Bordeaux Blanc, Bordeaux, France, 2016 ($16)

4.) Michele Chiarlo Barbera D’Asti Le Orme, Piedmont, Italy, 2014 ($15)

3 key tips to keep in mind when shopping for or selecting wines on a wine list.

– A handy calorie breakdown of the most popular styles of wine (i.e. sparkling, white & red) and which ones are the most waistline friendly.
